May 14/15 - Rare Chance to Visit and Taste at Amapola Creek

One of the reigning rock stars of California Cabs and Syrahs is Richard Arrowood, whose new winery/home is Amapola Creek on the western side of the Mayacamas Mountains. The winery is not open for tours in general, but this Saturday and Sunday the Sonoma Valley Vintners is having a special weekend of theme tours and Amapola is featured on two of the tours.

Arrowood will be hosting the tastings himself.

Details here.
Note: you must be on a tour to visit the winery. 

Amapola's 2007 Sonoma Valley Syrah got a 94 point rating from Parker. Read more about Amapola's wines here.

Veteran organic viticulturist Bill Coturri is the vineyard manager at Amapola.
